British Airways has announced that it has today started to operate direct flights to Tehran from London’s Heathrow Airport.
The service will run six times a week from Heathrow Terminal 5, using a four-class Boeing 777.
Sean Doyle, British Airways’ Head of network and fleet, said:
“British Airways has a long history of flying to Iran so we are very excited to be launching our new six times a week service, direct from Heathrow to Tehran.
“Iran is a fascinating country, full of amazing and surprising places for tourists to visit and discover its sophisticated and ancient culture.
“The recent lifting of sanctions has also effectively allowed Iran to re-open for business and paved the way for commerce to re-connect with Iran’s economy, which is the second largest in Middle East and North Africa, with a diverse range of businesses and industries.”
